I’ve pitched this to #Democrats & #Republicans / #Libertarians & all seem to like it. Seems like something #AndrewYang might go for? Oh, & I recorded this bit of audio in between picking up #Lyft passengers, because that's how we roll in the #GigEconomy #GliderCell #Yang2020— Lee Chazen (@Lee_Chazen) July 22, 2019

In this episode I ask the question:
In the Internet of Things, if everything is “talking” to everything else, can humans be left out of the conversation?

On the next GliderCell podcast, we'll be talking about Underemployment, Universal Basic Income and a concept known as Game B.
- What do we mean by underemployment?
- Why are the best ideas and solutions not rising to the top?
- How can people with good ideas, e.g. introverts and non-aggressive types be heard or convince others?
- Can you be too intelligent or creative for the type of economic system we have in place?
- Does a person have to quit all the interesting, fun and enjoyable things they once loved in order to be fully employed in our present economy?
- Why is this so difficult?
- Why do artists and other creative or visionary types seemingly have to suffer in order to pursue their passion?

Can corporate entities like Facebook, Google and cable news networks be trusted to inform the public with news and information? Are there some better solutions?
The thought occurred to me earlier in the week that we are not correctly understanding the nature of our system, i.e. the coexistence of capitalism and democracy. This thought became apparent as I was posting a response on Facebook to an Ann Coulter thread — something I will get to later. But, it goes way beyond the topic of Ann Coulter or Liberal vs. Conservative and gets to the heart of the system itself. This is about capitalism and the role of a corporation. Specifically, we are hearing a lot lately about the social responsibility of companies like Facebook and Google. Many are calling on the Silicon Valley giants to do the right thing and to screen for fake news, hate speech and such. We also expect a lot from news sources like CNN, MSNBC and Fox News, as we should.
